Description

Philipp Weber explores the possibilities of a new glassblowing tool which he developed in an earlier project entitled A Strange Symphony.

A trumpet-shaped glassblowing pipe enables the craftsman to shape the inner cavities of the glass. The addition of several valves at the top of the pipe allows the glassblower to introduce multiple air chambers inside of the piece, as opposed to the one chamber possible with a conventional pipe. These separated spaces create seemingly infinite light refractions which are further accented with a spare use of color. The result is a visually stunning piece that almost deceives perception.

This project is ongoing and can be understood as a study of light and color in glass.

Philipp Weber
‘Where lies the significance of craftsmanship today?’, ‘What is the meaning of the human relation to a material and its processing?’ or ‘What remains of a craft?’ are questions that guide my approach.
Philipp Weber (*1987 in Münster, Germany). In his work, he seeks to find emotional qualities within production processes. The mystery that lies in the craft of glass blowing or the alien work environment of a coal miner are topics which inspire him and feed his fascination. Weber believes that in an increasingly digitalized world the comprehension and appreciation for original relations of production processes are getting lost. By finding arcane values that reveal themselves in a new and different meaning he poses new prospects on craftsmanship or production process and their importance for our societies.
